Welcome back to the new year at Little Sutton Primary School. We hope you enjoyed the Christmas holiday and we look forward to working with you and your child in 2017.
These curriculum notes are intended to give you an idea of the topics your child will be studying during the Spring term. We have also written a reminder with regards to dinner money, medication and equipment needed in school. Details with regards to homework are also included.
We hope that these notes will enable you to support your child with the work they are carrying out at school by providing them with opportunities to extend their knowledge of the subjects. We would also appreciate you supporting them to complete homework to a high standard and return it on time as well as ensuring they have all the equipment they will need.

Many thanks for signing the homework diaries. Could you please continue to sign them and make sure that they are in school on a Monday morning?
Please pay dinner money via your ParentPay account if possible or put money in an envelope with your child’s name and the amount enclosed on the front. Cost of dinners this year is £2.15 per day.
Please ensure that inhalers and/or relevant medicines are in school and in date.

- Please ensure that all of your child’s PE kit is named and that pumps are the correct size. PE this term will be on a Tuesday and Friday. Could all clothing and belongings please be re-named as names labels do fade and many are becoming difficult to read.
On Thursday afternoons, while the Y5 staff use time for planning, preparation and assessment, the children will enjoy one hour of Music and one hour of French.
Our class assembly is on Wednesday 29th March at 9.00 a.m. and all parents are invited to attend.
Many thanks for your continued support throughout this year.
